USA Today And Their “Handy” Graphics


You’ve heard of the old adage “sex sells” – right? Well maybe that’s what USA Today thought when they ran this “handy” snapshot graphic in their publication.

I came across the image yesterday when a friend sent me a link to an article stating, “this seems like your type of humor” (ha – they were correct).

Although I find this highly amusing, I just can’t fathom why USA Today would run a graphic that has such underlying phallic imagery to it. Who knows, maybe no one on staff noticed… But come on – the sun is gripping the shaft of the thermometer.

I hope this little ray of sunshine brightened up your day as much as it did mine.

    That really is pretty funny, but it makes me wonder if the person hired to do the graphics has a sideline in adult site design too? Perhaps they’re so horny one aspect of their work seeps into another? lol
